The first B2B marketplace for imperfect and surplus produce

At Full Harvest, we are using technology to solve food waste, the third largest contributor to climate change. We have prevented 10 million pounds of produce and 600 million gallons of water from being wasted and averted 4 million kilograms of CO2 emissions.

Full Harvest is a California-based technology company solving one of the world’s largest problems – food waste. The company’s B2B marketplace is the first to connect food and beverage companies directly with farms to buy imperfect and surplus produce. US farms waste 20 billion pounds of produce annually simply due to strict retailer aesthetic standards. Full Harvest helps farms find new revenue streams while helping food and beverage companies lower their costs of goods.
